Halloween prep... (PICTURES!!)

Thursday, October 24, 2013

I'll jump on the bandwagon & post some of my 'progress' pics for my Halloween costume!
It's a Disney themed party this year (anything owned by Dizzz was fair game, so wide open).
I decided to go old-school-retro-traditional. :-)
Here's basically what I've aimed at:

and

Approximately.

A couple of thrift store bedsheets:


A downloaded picture of the approximate right shape:

(pattern being out of print...)

A mockup (sans sleeves):


The cape:


A cheap halloween wig (which needs some work before Saturday, obvs):


And, a helmet that's getting a bit of a makeover:


I'm still working on shoes... Worse comes to worse, I've got these silver crazy tall platform go-go boots that I can wear (It _is_ an adult halloween party, afterall), but I'm still on the lookout for boots like the photo, that I can spray paint silver.

Okay. Gotta get off the computer & get back to working on the costume!!

  Being this close to Halloween, the costume-themed stores around here have started doing crazy markdowns. Maybe you can find boots at a similar store in your neighborhood?

The costume looks awesome so far, by the way.
